Ingredients

  • cup Mashed Ripe Banana equivalent to 1 large Ripe Banana
  • 1 cup Quick Oats scooped, swept
  • ¼ cup Natural Peanut Butter or almond butter
  • cup Dark Chocolate Chips

Optinal

  • 2 teaspoons Maple Syrup

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Lightly oil the paper with coconut oil. Set aside.
  • Peel, mash the bananas with a fork or potato masher into a liquid puree. If too many lumps, the cookies end up dry, so mash it very well.
  • Measure 2/3 cup not less or more to avoid dry cookie and stir in a bowl with peanut butter and maple syrup (if added).
  • Stir in the quick-cooking oats (not rolled oats!) and chocolate chips. The cookie batter should be sticky, thick. If too wet, add more quick oats. If too dry, add more mashed banana.
  • Scoop one tablespoon of batter, slightly grease your hands with coconut oil and roll into a ball.
  • Place the cookie dough ball onto the prepared cookie sheet. Flatten with your hands and repeat until you have formed 10 cookies. Leave half a thumb of space between each cookie - they won't expand in the oven.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown on sides and top. The longer you bake the cookies, the crispier they are on the edges, but the center should stay soft and moist.
  • Cool on the cookie rack for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack.

Storage

  • Store up to 3 months in the fridge on an airtight cookie jar or freeze in zip lock bags and thaw at room temperature the day before.
